Today, Soma announced the availability of the Visual Studio 2012 Update 1! You can install it either from the download page (see "Visual Studio 2012 Update 1" under the "Additional software" section).

As promised, you can now use the Visual C++ compiler and libraries to target Windows XP and Windows Server 2003. To target Windows XP:

  1. In Solution Explorer, open the shortcut menu for your project, and then choose Properties.
  2. In the Property Pages dialog box for the project, under Configuration Properties, General, set the Platform Toolset property to Visual Studio 2012 – Windows XP (v110_xp).

As always, we'd love to hear your feedback. Please submit suggestions to Visual Studio UserVoice. You can also follow us on Twitter (@VisualC) and like us on Facebook (Visual CPP) and post to our wall.

  • @Kjell Hedström : This update does not include *any* changes or additions to C++11 functionality.

  • @Trout.Z

    I know that, but I'm try to print an address of a char (a single charioteer variable), not of a char*...And if it's so even for char variables too (and not only for char*), why the same beheviour is not for wchar_t? That doesn't make sense.

  • It'd be great if Microsoft would just offer a full download instead of having me run stuff with funny command line options (-> /Layout).

  • Can someone respond to Michael's request for clarification on the version number of the amd64 version of cl.exe?

  • Any information on te next vc11 update you could share?
